We wandered along the river bank at Yarra Bend park a few days after the storms and the river was brown, very brown. It almost doesn't look like a river.
It was good for seeing the shadows of the trees though.
I often wonder where all the silt comes from, if some farmers are missing their soil. I know they hate the dust storms that occasionally sweep through and then dump lots of soil elsewhere, so I presume the floods aren't good either, although the silt is good for the areas where it is left I suppose.

I have often thought if using my photos of the area for a tapestry but am put off by the colour of the water. I haven't wanted to try weaving brown water. However, today there were interesting reflections of the sky and surrounds, made more interesting by the ripples caused by dogs cooling off.
one I saw on My Life is but a Tapestry. It is gorgeous. (Another link here.) Maybe I can take inspiration from it - one day.
